Tiger Woods arrested in Florida on DUI suspicion

Posted June 04, 2017

According to the police report, an officer in Jupiter, Florida, saw a black Mercedes stopped in the roadway in the right lane.

His speech was "extremely slow and slurred", and his attitude was "cooperative, confused", officer Christopher Fandrey wrote in his report.

Woods was taken into custody, where he took a breathalyzer test and blew zeroes.

Woods released a statement on Monday night apologising, and insisting there was no alcohol involved.

He said he exchanged texts with Woods on Monday and that Woods told him no alcohol was involved.

In a statement released on Monday, the long term golf champion claims he had an "unexpected reaction" to his medications, which led him to act out. "I didn't realise the mix of medications had affected me so strongly".

The 14-time major victor will not play again this season after undergoing a fourth back surgery last month, and Nicklaus has called for support from the golfing community. I hope he gets out of it, and I hope he plays golf again.

Woods, 41, told police he was taking several prescriptions at the time of his arrest, the police report said.

There are four directions in which this case can travel - regular DUI offense; can file for more severe charges; seek a lesser charge, such as reckless driving; or not bring any charges at all.

Nike announced Tuesday it would continue endorsing Tiger Woods following the golfer's DUI arrest over Memorial Day weekend. But he said he had not taken Vioxx this year. He is not playing on the PGA Tour this season.

"Tiger is a friend".

"I think that he's struggling". He said the arrest was due to an "unexpected reaction to prescribed medications".

Rist added, "I think he's a good person, and clearly he's a good father, and he's going through a hard time, and I think people should offer support instead of applauding his downfall".
